Realistic Textures: Figure Carving an Elephant with Kathy Flanagan
About This Video
Stohlman award-winning artist Kathy Flanagan is internationally renowned for the life-like realism that she creates with figure carving and painting. She's taught workshops all over the world and is joining our roster of online instructors at Elktracks Studio.
In this first workshop, Kathy demonstrates the carving techniques used to create shockingly realistic textures that you would see on an elephant. She shares how to create the skin, the wrinkles, and the natural creasing that occurs in these beautiful animals through carving, tooling, and shading. Additionally, she shows how to create eyes that seemingly bring the animal to life.
Part two of this workshop series reviews some refinement of the carving process before painting the elephant portrait with beautiful realism.
